...What do you do with a B.A. in English?

Posted on

Avenue Q is an American broadway musical about the coming of age stories all twenty-somethings go through on their venture into adulthood. The story takes place on Avenue Q, a parody of the hit children's series Sesame Street where our protagonist meets all sorts of quirky characters living on the same block.

Avenue Q is aimed towards adults due to its crude humor and language despite that fact that half of the main cast are puppets.
